I am so glad you're here!
Do you love glitter? I do! These sparkly mugs will not only fulfill your innate need for sparkly, beautiful things in your life but they make fabulous gifts as well!
If you have any questions about the process, materials (or anything else!) leave my a comment or send me an email and I will get back to you!
I first made these mugs for my mom who LOVES sparkles. She had just moved into a new home and needed a housewarming present. These mugs are easy to make and the best part is: they are dishwasher safe!
I know. I'm excited about it, too!
Want to learn how to make them? Here's what you need:
- Plain glass or porcelain mugs (mine are from the dollar store but you can get similar ones online here)
- Masking tape
- Martha Stewart Decoupage Formula, Gloss Finish
- Paintbrush (these are my favorite)
- Glitter (I really like Martha Stewart glitter but any kind will do)
Before we dive in, don't forget to pin this post to save it for later!
Step 1: Tape off mug
Use masking tape to tape off the bottom of your mug. Don't forget to tape off the handle as well!
Step 2: Glitterify!
Use a paintbrush to apply decoupage medium below the tape line. While the medium is still wet, generously douse the mug in glitter. I like to do this over a plain white piece of paper so I can collect any unused glitter and put it back in the bottle.
While the decoupage medium is still wet, carefully peel up the masking tape.
Set mugs aside to dry glitter side UP! Allow to dry for about 8 hours or overnight before moving on to step 3.
